Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

So, I am a terribly unorganised blogger.  I usually forget to take photos of baked goods for recipes, and when I do remember I've usually missed the natural goodness of daylight so they look terrible.  Anyway, I'm pretty impressed with myself today as I absolutely remembered to take (lots) of pics while I was baking!...

Cheesy bacon dip

Have you ever had a cheesy bacon dip that is in the middle of a big cob loaf?  And you use the bread chunks that have been hollowed out to scoop the dip out?  And you sit there eating it until you either make yourself sick or it's all gone?  No?  I've never done that... Continue Reading →

Book of Mormon – the Musical

I had my latest treatment at the hospital... Continue Reading →

Honey teriyaki chicken wings

As I may have mentioned, a friend of mine (that's you Ben) has requested more savoury type dishes.  He's a savoury type of guy.  And I'm pretty sure I've made these for him before.  Now that we've moved from two floors up to about 800km away, I thought I might share this with him... and...
